Babouche

No.223

A cheerful yellow

Babouche takes its exotic name from the distinctive colour of the leather slippers worn by men in Morocco. It has a cheerful brightness that will intensify when used in large areas, but it is always dignified and never garish. Babouche can be paired with Railings for a very modern but sumptuous effect. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: White & Light Tones

Complementary white: House White

Babouche is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 64.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful colour We have had Babouche in our hallway for years and people have complimented us on the colour. We’re buying a new house where we will use the same colour again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great colour Painted my north facing kitchen in Babouche. I was slightly concerned that it would be dark but I am delighted with the result. It is warm and classy, enhancing the wood features of the room. It was lovely to work with and went a long way!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous colour. First class paint. A joy to work with. The small pot was enough for several coats to wooden shutters. Babouche is a gorgeous colour. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious! The colour and paint is faultless. Alas the delivery company, even though I was home, deposited the boxes over the wall. Thankfully F&B package the paint very well so there was only a slight leakage from one tin. Love the paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality I bought a sample pot to test the colour. It arrived very quickly and the tester contained plenty of paint to try in several areas. Covers really well with a great depth of colour. Well worth it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff! Surprisingly runny consistency gave a slightly translucent finish. I was applying this to wood that had had a clear varnish on previously (which I had now sanded off) so the grain showed through 2 thin coats. Some might regard this as a problem but I liked the end result a lot. Strong even colour with enough grain showing to establish that it is wood. I'd done some sums beforehand to work out how much required - thought 750 ml would be enough but it did the two coats with quite a bit to spare. Very happy. It' expensive stuff but does the job very well. Ordered during lock-down but delivery was very quick.
